Trimble SPS985 Batteries
Does anyone know of a good place to get quality replacement batteries for a SPS985 rover other than a Sitech or similar Trimble provider? I am paying $111 per battery and I see "replacements" for sale online for a fraction of the price but don't want to risk ruining my equipment.
If they are the same as R8 batteries, I have found that the ones from Batteryfly are pretty good.
Those really cheap chinese batteries probably won't ruin your equipment. More likely they will just crap out after a month or 2 and turn out to be not worth it.
I had the batteries for my Carlson CD recelled back in around 2011 and will never make that mistake again, it's better to pay the premium price than go through the hassle.
